    Thinking of getting some of those Mechanix gloves. Fairly cheap, not bad looking. :dunno:

    yeah don't really need anything expensive. that's why I thought the mechanix would be decent. just being in this region, lots of time shooting in ~40-60 degree weather

    wow, those wiley's look nice.
    i was thinking about getting gloves more or less to save my hands from a stupid mistake. it's probably a rare occurrence that there would be a misfire, or explosion, but it's better to be safe than sorry?
    everything i've looked at seems like you have to sacrifice a fair amount of feel/grip for safety...

    I think the $35 ones are knock-offs though. Wonder how they'd hold up if you're not really an operator. Probably just fine

    I have a pair of Hatch "Elite Marksman". They fit well and have real good tactile sensation and are pretty reasonably priced but I hardly ever use them. I got them mostly to have for some training classes I hope to taking this summer, so I guess I could give a better report then.

    I don't ware gloves to the range but I do put on a pair of welding gloves when I go pig hunting. Although those are mostly to keep my hands from getting torn up by the thorns and HEAVY brush of west Texas.

    I wore my dual layer softshell gloves yesterday. Too thick, I think I'm going to look at some glove liners at REI.

    I race dirt bikes and just use my old motocross gloves. I hear a lot of troops over in Iraq use the same type of gloves. At least the series I race was collecting mx gloves to send to the troops (by request) last year.
